"Elderly Maine considers tax hike to fund universal home care" PBS NewsHour 11/1/2018
SUMMARY: On November 6, Maine voters will consider a proposal to provide free home care to people 65 and older and those with disabilities. The plan, “Question 1” on the Ballot, would be funded by an additional 3.8 percent tax on income over $128,400. While the program would serve populations in need, critics fear the tax increase would stall the state economy. Paul Solman talks to Mainers for more.
